The case for space


The RIBA has produced a report looking at the internal floor area of privately developed homes on a sample of sites currently being built by England’s eight largest volume housebuilders, and comparing the findings to the Greater London Authority’s space standards to benchmark good practice. The initiative is part of wider work by the RIBA in this field, including its HomeWise campaign to improve new build housing and its Home Season events which explore the past, present and future of the home.
